DJ BEE is well on his way to being another legendary DJ from the “City of Brotherly Love”. From wining bodies in Jamaica, making heads bob on Da Block, getting his mixtape grind on and making em’ sweat in the clubs, DJ BEE believes there is no limit to his goals.
FROM BEE TO YOU: “I want the normal ear to understand turntablism as an art form. I’m a turntablist and I incorporate that into my set in the clubs, on my mix tapes/cds and on the radio. It is important to develop a formula where you can please the masses but still do you. I’ve developed a formula that’s not over the top. I don’t over do anything and I DON’T overdo the “bring it back more than 3 times” rule. I can mix and blend any type of music, read the crowd at a party but in a way a 40+ year old woman will be like damn he killin it! I can murder any radio show w/skills and creativity from intros and drops that I produced my self!!!”

My family is important to me and they keep me focused because I know I have to continue to feed and provide for them; plus I love the Hip Hop Culture and the artform of DJing so much that this is all I want to do, I don’t want to do anything else.
